There's not much to say about this hotel except the staff was very pleasant and well organized. It was the spring break college visit rush time of the year and they handled the check-ins very efficiently.

The Best Western hotel is very good and Carpinteria is a very nice little town with great beach. I would definitely recommend this hotel and stay there again when in the area. The rooms were nice and clean. The hotel is located very close to the highway and rooms towards the back will hear the traffic noise. If you would... More

Pleasantly surprised by the hotel and the staff. a treasure to find after a long drive. The pool and spa are a must for a business traveler like myself. The restaurant and staff ere friendly and made my short time in Carpenteria a pleasant one.

Stayed at this hotel because of its moderate rates while on a trip to Santa Barbara. The hotel is a pretty, three story Spanish style structure with red bougainvillea spilling over the walls. My huge room was super clean, nicely decorated and had everything I needed. After a long day driving I was glad to find a bar with a... More

We were hoping to stay in Santa Barbara for the weekend but prices were atrocious and we were unable to get the Santa Barbara Best Western on points. My husband used to stay at this hotel on business years ago and we decided to stay here instead (on points). We had a great room on the first level, right on... More

Faucets did not close all the way, tub shower did not work property, tiles seems to be dirty & carpet had stains all over.

My wife and I stayed here as it had the amenities we wanted at the price point we needed. We were visiting Santa Barbara for 2 days and since we had a car, with this property being about 10 miles south of Santa Barbara and located very close to the freeway (US 101), it worked for us.
